ePub Squeaker: Tool to tweak ePubs

I've created a simple tool to update ePubs (either one book or an entire directory structure) to make them easier to use with a Nook.

Specifically, it does the following:

* Tries to fix the ePub so the Nook can find the cover for the library view.
* Removes Calibre bookmarks.
* Splits HTML files at page break tags, to create a page break on the Nook (or on other ADE devices).

This program requires .NET 4.0. Source code is provided, under an MIT-style license, with apologies (I know I need to do some cleanup work, especially on the GUI).

Any feedback, unexpected errors, etc. are appreciated.

Downloads are available from the Google Code project.

Looks very interesting. I'll give it a try.

Thanks for your work!

v0.2 has been released. The major new feature is that it will split an ePub at page-break-before tags; Nook and other ADE readers ignore these, so the text appears continuous, instead of starting the new chapter on a new page.

Hi ATimson, i really appreciate you creating this tool!

Unfortunately it keeps crashing on me when i try to update all my books at once (12,000 in various sub directories). Is there any way i can get some debug information for you about these crashes?

Have you considered writing this tool as a calibre plugin? I'm sure it would attract a lot of interest from all nook owners.

Let me see what I can do about debug information - I don't think I'm leaving any, so I think that I'll have to give you a new version to create some...

If I'd started writing this as a tool for sharing, I'd probably have gone the Calibre plugin route; I really wrote it half as a tool for myself, half as practice in using C#. I may still rewrite it, but Python gives me hives.
